    A campaign to get more truck drivers behind the wheel

    A campaign to get more truck drivers behind the wheel


    Transporting New Zealand's sending an SOS out for licensed heavy vehicle drivers - to help with staffing shortages and supply chain issues.

    Chief Executive Nick Leggett estimates about a quarter of trucking companies have at least one vehicle off the road.

    He says Omicron has added staffing pressures - and the industry needs to do better at selling the benefits of the profession.
